About the Event

This late Mardi Gras themed celebration aims to unite the community in support of a cause that touches the hearts of both organizations – ‘Safe Play Spaces for All’. AWARE, celebrating nearly 50 years of dedicated service, focuses on providing invaluable support, resources, and assistance to adults and youth with mental health or developmental disabilities residing in Montana.

Event Details:

- Date: Friday, February 23, 2024

- Time: Doors open at 5:30 pm.

- Location: The Newberry, 420 Central Ave, Great Falls, MT 59401

The primary objective of Tardi Gras is to raise over $60,000 to support AWARE's sensory playrooms and spaces, helping to fully equip with sensory tools, games, crash pads, and sensory-supporting furniture. These sensory spaces will serve as a haven for individuals AWARE supports, facilitating skill development, mindfulness practice, and distress tolerance. *

AWARE’s Chief Executive Officer, Matt Bugni shared, “We are humbled and honored to partner with Rotary Electric to raise much needed funds for our sensory spaces. Our Unconditional Care Principles drive the work we do to fulfill our mission to help people live independent lives and we believe that our connection with our communities is vital. This fundraiser provides an incredible opportunity to connect with our neighbors while supporting our dream to create sensory spaces in all of our homes in Great Falls. Creating safe spaces to play, learn and grow is critical to bringing our mission to life.”

Rotary Electric and AWARE extend an invitation to the community and local businesses to join them as sponsors for Tardi Gras. Your sponsorship will not only demonstrate a commitment to individuals with disabilities but also provide exposure to a diverse audience, including engaged community leaders.

Your generous support is greatly appreciated and will play a vital role in the success of Tardi Gras, as well as in the lives of those served by AWARE. Together, let's make a difference in our community and create Safe Play Spaces for All!
